Power Plugs: There are several upstairs against the back wall. None in the huge, bright front room.
Size: Two floor cafe, a grand space with many options for seating.
Lighting: Loads of big windows for natural light. During a work day, candles are still lit, providing the perfect amount of Dutch ambiance.
Noise level: When I arrived at 9:30am, no one else was there. There is soft music. Around lunch, slightly more busy, but not in the back. The silence was almost too much. Then around 5, it gets really busy for after work drinks.
Vibe: Typical dutch cafe-mostly. There is something gezellig about the decor here, though. Simple dutch lunch is served with normal coffees, beers, etc.
What we think: Although we like it, it was a little too quiet and not enough vegetarian lunch. We had a cheat day and ate an uitsmitjer…or open-faced egg sandwich. It was normal by Dutch standard.
